A New York City hotel is hoping to help Phillies fans drown their sorrows if the Phillies lose World Series games at Yankee Stadium. Hotel Indigo NYC Chelsea, on West 28th St., announced a "Drown Your Sorrows" promotion. If you book a room for the night of any World Series game at Yankee Stadium, present your ticket stub and a valid drivers' license to prove you live in the city of Philadelphia and that you are 21 or over, and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of Perrier-Jouet champagne.

Team Canada's victory parade, alas, will not go up Broad Street. Brian Propp and Rick Tocchet were feted this morning in civic ceremonies from their coach seats on a 9 a.m. flight home. But seeing the two Flyers curled up together in a relatively quiet corner of the champagne-soaked locker room, passing a bottle after winning the Canada Cup last night, was very much a Philadelphia moment. Propp has been to the Stanley Cup finals three times in his eight Flyer seasons and Tocchet twice in his three.

The television lights had already been hung from the ceiling of the Pirates' clubhouse. The champagne was chilled. Pittsburgh wouldn't celebrate this night, though. The Atlanta Braves won, 1-0, to extend the National League Championship Series to a seventh and final game. And while the Pirates' room was subdued, the more noticeable emotion was something quite different and a little unexpected. Player after player talked about how much fun it has been to play in a series in which so many games have been decided by the slimmest of margins.

Allez la France! As the world knows, France beat Brazil, 3-0, to win soccer's World Cup on Sunday. From Calais to Toulouse, from Brest to Grenoble, millions of French are brachiating and jubilating. All this, and Bastille Day, too. Quite a frisson for the French Fourth of July. Some are calling this victory the greatest thing to happen in France since liberation from the Nazis in 1944. Hyperbole? Name something really terrific that has happened to France lately. We'll wait.

The way local residents carried on about Britain's royal wedding yesterday, you might have thought Prince Andrew had married the daughter of a Philadelphia bricklayer. From dawn until dark, area Anglophiles celebrated the marriage of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, now the Duke and Duchess of York. There was champagne at breakfast, champagne at lunch, champagne in the evening. The Palace Hotel imported Buckingham Palace guards and blasted a tape recording of the Westminster Abbey bells over its outdoor loudspeakers; the Dickens Inn offered a "Royal Wedding Cocktail," and the English-Speaking Union re-enacted the wedding with a mystery bride.

ISSUE | LeSEAN McCOY Offensive to police A letter about an Old City bar fight involving former Eagles star LeSean McCoy and three off-duty police officers asked, "How could the two officers and a sergeant afford four bottles of champagne costing $1,050?" ("Sgt. Pérignon," Friday). That seemed to imply that the officers had done something wrong. Many police officers have college degrees, and many work extra jobs to afford things they could not afford on a police salary. These men could have made smart investments, worked an extra job, or hit the lottery.

Remember those effervescent eves of yesteryear when we'd toast the new year with out-of-season strawberries drowning in champagne? How quaint. Auld Lang Syners are now more likely to trade strawberries for strawberry liqueur. Or spike their champagne with plum-flavored vodka, strawberry-infused rum, Oprah's favorite pomegranate liqueur, or any number of libations from around the world. "There's been an explosion of customer interest in liqueurs to add to sparkling wines," says Robert Peters, a consultant at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's Wine and Spirits Shop in Ardmore.

BUZZ: Hey Marnie, why do they call some wines brutes? It makes sense on a slam-dunk zinfandel, but I've only ever see it on champagnes, not on a big, strong wine. Marnie: That is a quirk of wine language that many find confusing, Buzz. It has nothing to do with alcoholic strength. Essentially, "Brut" doesn't mean "big and strong. " It means "not at all sweet" or "very dry. " Buzz: You mean it's just French slang? Marnie: Actually, it is one of many regulated terms that indicate the degrees of sweetness in sparkling wines.

Is there any moment more hopeful than that first pour of sparkling wine splashing into your glass? The swirl of tiny bubbles, doubling back in a creamy rush of foam, blooms to the surface beneath our noses as the wine world's most emphatic offering of something glittery and gorgeous to come. It's no wonder so many corks will be popped this coming New Year's week. When the calendar year turns, one can only hope our daily lives embrace the optimism that shimmers in the glass. So there's no better time to consider your options to make that bubbly moment count.

Did you catch the raucous St. Louis Cardinals locker-room celebration after they clinched their third consecutive division title in the final days of the regular season? Yeah, I know - I hate 'em, too. The Cardinals, as comedian/Cubs fan Bill Murray put it, are "Satan's messengers on earth. " But you have to give them credit, for, in a little-noticed gesture, the team took a big step toward ending a despicable tradition that has plagued baseball for more than a half-century. Instead of popping the cork on bottles of Champagne, they celebrated their victory with beer.
